Kelly is having a little blog party, how is the recession affecting your fashion? Are you making different choices, buying less, looking for a sale?
I recently was shocked to hear The First Born refer to me as “frumpy”. I am still not sure what I think about her opinion, but it made me “step it up”. I have two very different wardrobes, one for work and one for play. I give VERY LITTLE attention to the play wardrobe, she might be right my sweats might be a little frumpy. I try to keep my “work stuff” professional, but still fun.
I go to the mall once maybe twice a year. I shop at Abercrombie for Mr. Perfect and Limited 2 for The Baby, usually at Christmas and right before school starts. The rest of the year I hunt for bargains.
I find some great deals, my most recent addiction is black and white jackets.
I bought one at TJ Maxx for $24.95 and one at Stein Mart for $29.99.
I wear a ton of black and white, I accent with everything. Red, teal, lime green…I love color but I think the black and white base keeps it from getting too busy.
We have an awesome local store in Cincy called The Next Best Thing, where I can find every color accessory. I love everything in this store.
I have recently started buying lots and lots of brooches at Goodwill and thrift stores, I love the old antique type. I work with senior citizens and they get a kick out of my brooches.
